A Nigeria international with 26 caps for his country, Onazi currently plays for Lazio, and has made an impressive 86 first-team appearances for the Serie A club, despite his young age. He starred for his country in the 2014 World Cup, and looks to have a bright future.
The links to Merseyside club Liverpool started prior to the World Cup, with the Mirror reporting on interest from the Reds, and Onazi admitting that he would ‘jump at the chance’ of signing for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
With all this increased interest in him, Onazi was approached by TMW, who asked him whether he had received any official approaches to transfer away from Lazio, and he confirmed that he had.
“I was approached by more than ten clubs,” the midfielder said. “But I am a Lazio player. I'm still young, I want to grow and play in European competitions. In life you have to take one step at a time.”
